I bought this awhile back and had never gotten around to painting the garage. Well HD had paint on sale plus a rebate so I figured it was time. I went to YouTube to "brush up" on how to clean/technic to use it. It turned out real easy to do both. I guess it would have taken a day and a half to roll/brush the garage and it only took about 2 hours to spray, another 1.5 hours or so to mask roof edging and soffit. and about 30 minutes to clean. I also painted an enclosed porch in about an hour including masking a window. Now I'm looking for things to paint. The house has aluminum siding which is still in real good shape (DARN !!).
I had bought two 50' hoses (100' max) and was well worth it. The only minus is the gun included is not a mainstream model and you have to look for filters for it. HD still sells the model and they should still stock consumables but don't. I also opted for a tip that would paint a smaller pattern (more control). I also bought a 10â extension which helped in not having to extend my extension ladder.
Overall it was well worth the money considering that I will be adding on to the house hopefully in the next couple of years.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by bullfrog excellent purchase
i have 20 years painting experience . i have used many different types of airless pumps . this is an excellent pump for the price . i was not sure if it would maintain consistent pressure . when i got into an open area . i opened up the gun to see what it could do . it maintained pressure consistently. you will have to add a spray whip and swivel to your hose at the gun to alleviate coiling . but that goes for any airless hose . excellent value for the price . pump , hose and gun . you will not find a better set up for the price . i highly recommend this product ...............

Rated 5 out of 5Â by jjj2 very reliable
I very seldom write reviews but this product warrants a review. I bought an x7 in 2007 and have used it over and over and it has been a great sprayer. I have used oil paint and primer, latex paint and primer and had no problems with it. I have painted the exterior of 5 houses and the side of an old brick building that took 25 gallons of paint as well as lots of interior work and also have allowed friends to use it that needed a sprayer. All told I would venture a guess it has sprayed over 170 gallons of paint through it. I have replaced a couple tips that have worn out but the sprayer has been great and has made me some extra money doing painting for others. Unfortunately I think the pump is going bad on it now, and I will have to get another one, but who can complain with the time saved and the money earned using it. I will be buying another one just like it since I know it is very reliable. Just wanted everyone who is looking at this sprayer that it is more than worth the price.

Used my new X7 to spray Behr Premium semi-transparent stain on my large deck. Covered up the plants and house with Painters plastic and a meticulous taping job. Followed the instructions on the stain and used the 515 spray tip and had my wife back roll with a 5/16" microfiber roller. We knocked this out in no time. Hand brushing all that lattice would have been a chore.The sprayer performed flawlessly. I bought the swivel and the spray hose whip as people suggested. Also, as people have mentioned, the DVD instructions are awesome. This was a water based stain so cleanup was a breeze using the garden hose flush. Lastly, grab yourself a spray shield- 36" x 9" with handle. A great tool to keep from spraying unwanted areas. Go to YouTube and watch videos of people using an airless sprayer. Next up will be spraying my new T1-11 sided shed.
